Guest Speaker: Dr Celene McNeil (Audiologist) - Healthy Hearing & Balance Care.
This clinic has developed a reputation of being able to solve the hearing and balance needs of those who could not be helped elsewhere. Dr Celene McNeill with Prof Bill Gibson and Ms Kathee DeLapp have a special interest in Meniere’s disease, tinnitus and other chronic auditory and vestibular disorders.
Hearing journey of individuals with Meniere’s disease
Hearing loss is one of the symptoms of Meniere’s disease. Initially the hearing loss fluctuates but as the disease progresses to its final stages it becomes permanent. Management of hearing loss helps to improve quality of life. This presentation will describe the effects of hearing loss and its progression. Hearing technology options will be discussed by the audiologist and the journey from hearing aids to cochlear implant will be presented by 3 ladies with Menieres who have gone through the process.
This will be an interactive session and the audience will be encouraged to ask questions.
Time: 10.30 - 12.30
Venue: Benledi House, 186 Glebe Point Road
Entry fee: $6-$10
Sufferers, family, friends and supporters are welcome
